MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — An annual Labor Day tradition won’t be happening in 2020. According to an event post by the AFL-CIO Southwest Alabama Labor Council, the 2020 Labor Day Parade is listed as canceled. This is known as the toilet paper parade where. “The toilet paper in the Labor Day Parade is traditionally donated by Kimberly Clark. It is thrown by Southwest Alabama Labor Council members and its affiliate unions’ members,” according to the Labor Council.
According to a Facebook post in August, some of that toilet paper was donated to the United Way of Mobile. We reached out to the Facebook page of the local AFL-CIO Chapter and they responded:
“The parade was cancel due to Covid-19. There isn’t anything official scheduled in its place. We will be back to celebrate our 75th next year.”
